Fort Worth PD implements Distracted Driving Policy

Following on from the video above, NBC Dallas/Fort Worth reports that the fort Worth Police Department has introduced a Distracted Driving Policy which stipulates that officers pull over before using  their in-vehicle computer.

At Blank-IT, we believe that policies alone are not effective and that technology is also required to fully address the issue of in-car computer use. This is particularly important in the case of emergency responders where time can be a critical factor.
